Bosco Society

Fidelis works together with our brother organization, Fraternus, to establish a support society for both the local chapter and the national missions of these apostolates.

The Bosco Society is made to:

(1) support the operations of a local Fidelis and/or Fraternus Chapter, (2) supply scholarships for Inspire and/or Ranch, and

(3) help Fidelis and/or Fraternus to grow to new areas.

These goals are the standard and guiding principles of the Bosco Society.

How does it work?

Why should our parish give through Bosco?

Fidelis is a non profit 501(c)(3) that seeks to impact the world through the formation of strong and virtuous women and young ladies.

The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.

-Ven. Fulton Sheen


We strive to keep our costs as low as possible while still providing quality resources for women to bring to their communities.


 Bosco Events and the resulting Bosco Society of donors has proven to be the best and most powerful way to ensure community awareness, support, and partnership of the Fidelis Program in a parish. The Bosco Society enables a chapter to provide scholarships to the young women in a parish who might not otherwise be able to attend  Inspire, local retreats, or even weekly Fidelis Nights.

When a parish opts to utilize the Bosco Society, they not only save valuable parish time and resources but they are able have a larger impact that goes beyond their parish by providing vital support of the overall Fidelis Mission including program content, mentor formation, and program growth. 

"The hour is coming, in fact has come, when the vocation of women is being acknowledged in its fullness, the hour in which women acquire in the world an influence, an effect and a power never hitherto achieved. That is why, at this moment when the human race is undergoing so deep a transformation, women imbued with a spirit of the gospel can do so much to aid humanity in not falling."

(closing message of the Second Vatican Council)

The Impact of the Bosco Society


We were excited to help start a Bosco Society for our chapter, a model for fundraising that allows friends and families to donate funds to support sending Fraternus brothers and Fidelis sisters on this life-changing, summer experience. We volunteered to organize the first such event and contributed matching donations to get things started. With God’s grace, our chapter has never denied anyone the opportunity to experience Ranch or Inspire.
